I'm a blanket- hogger!

I have had Shady for 3 years now, and every time I take him to my dad's house, I have to argue with him about whether Shady is a minpin or a chihuahua... And my dad is not the only one who won't believe me. Granted, we live in KY, but don't people think that I know what kind of dog I have? I always get the "overgrown mouse" comment too. Anyone else have this problem? Not a big deal, but annoying none the less.

Whenever Charlie and I go for a walk everyone always says , AWW what is he? A Chi?? And then I saw no a minichure pincher and they say oh so he's a baby still then, he does kinda look like a doberman. lol yup i know exactly what you mean.

I've never been mistaken for a Chi, though my late sister, Lilly, was! Grandpa found her near his construction site (she was a stray) and called up Mom and Grandma saying that there was a dog that resembled a Chihuahua hanging around and wanted to know if we wanted her. When we came to see her, mom said, "Daddy, how can you possibly mistake her for a Chihuahua? That's a MIN PIN." laugh out loud

I think part of the reason I've never been mistaken for a Chi is because Chico (my Chi brother) and I often go places together. When people see the two of us standing together, it's quite obvious we're not the same breed. BOL. So, we usually just get the question of, "Aaaaw. She's so cute! What is she?" Not that I blame them for not knowing what I am. Min Pins aren't that commonly seen around here. There's like...only one breeder for them in our area. laugh out loud

Yes, and I hate it! The only thing I hate more is when people refer to me as a Mini Doberman! Mommy always points out that Min Pins were around long before Dobies. She also points out that Chihuahuas don't have the legs that I have!! I have long lovely stems!

The same things happens to us!!!! Mom gets so mad..okay , I have kind of short stumpy muscular legs (Cookie has long skinny legs) but I dont have a Chi head or eyes! and people also ask if we are mini-dobermans.and when mom says were are not they dont believe her!

thats weird guys, min pins and chi's look really different. i spose you have to know your dog breeds to be able to tell the difference.

To Know Me is to- Love Me

I get the chi comment sometimes but I don't know why cuz my legs are way too long to be a chi! BOL! My sister is a full min pin and everyone seems to know she is a min pin or the fictitious "min dobie" laugh out loud
